Victoria Identifies New Gold Targets on the Dublin Gulch Property, Yukon

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/27/13 -- Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:VIT) ("Victoria" or the "Company") is pleased to report favorable results from early stage exploration on the newly staked VBW and VBS claim blocks. Victoria has discovered a 5 km long, east-west striking gold-in-soil trend on the western claims, returning up to 244 ppb Au (Figure 2). As a result, Victoria has identified multiple new gold targets for follow up exploration in 2013.

Reconnaissance mapping and soil geochemistry programs were initiated in 2012 to collect data in two areas that have not been explored in over 20 years. Historical exploration included mapping and sampling efforts done by the Yukon Geological Survey in the mid-1990s. These lands were staked by Victoria in November, 2011 as part of an Access and Exploration Agreement with the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun.

This ground covers an area of 290 km2 (Figure 1 - shown in green).

In September, 2012, 1942 ridge and spur soil samples were collected from the company's VBW and VBS claim blocks. Results of the soil sampling program defined a 5 km long, east-west striking gold-in-soil (greater than 20 ppb Au) and coincident As, Ag, Sb and Bi trend on the western claims, returning up to 244 ppb Au (Figure 2). The trend is proximal to and coincident with an area of quartz veined quartzite with local areas of heavily oxidized brecciated quartzite and associated en echelon quartz veins as well as several mapped faults. These positive indicators are hallmarks for identifying gold mineralization with favourable metallurgical recovery. Contact metamorphism in the sediments are evident extending 2km east-west in the vicinity of the highest soil values in VBW providing additional confidence the targets are of sufficient size to warrant a meaningful follow up exploration program.

The mapping program also delineated two outcropping intrusive bodies. One of these outcrops is located 1.5km north of the gold in soil trend and the other is located in the northwest quadrant of the VBW claim block. The intrusions are interpreted to be of similar character to the Dublin Gulch stock, which hosts the company's Eagle gold deposit, located 15 km to the east.

Mr. John McConnell, President and CEO of Victoria commented, "These results demonstrate the very large scale of the wider Dublin Gulch property and provide promising indications of gold mineralization adjacent to the company's flagship Eagle Gold deposit."

The company plans to follow up the results of this season's program with an expanded geochemical sampling and mapping program, and a property-wide airborne geophysical survey to better delineate areas prospective for gold deposits. Reconnaissance drilling is planned to test the gold bearing targets identified during the 2012 program. The Victoria geological team is encouraged with the 2012 results and the prospect of discovering a new gold deposit in this relatively unexplored area.

About Victoria

Victoria Gold is an emerging gold producer whose flagship asset is its 100% owned Dublin Gulch property which hosts the Eagle Gold Deposit. Dublin Gulch is situated in central Yukon Territory, Canada, approximately 375 kilometers north of the capital city of Whitehorse. The property covers an area of approximately 650 square kilometers, is accessible by road year-round and is located within Yukon Energy's electrical grid.

The Eagle Gold Deposit is expected to be Yukon's next operating gold mine and includes Probable Reserves of 2.3 million ozs of gold from 92 million tonnes of ore with a grade of 0.78 grams of gold per tonne, as outlined in a National Instrument 43-101 definitive feasibility study. The NI 43-101 Compliant Mineral Resource has been estimated to host 222 million tonnes averaging 0.68 grams of gold per tonne, containing 4.9 million ounces of gold in the "Indicated" category, inclusive of Probable Reserves, and a further 78 million tonnes averaging 0.60 grams of gold per tonne, containing 1.5 million ounces of gold in the "Inferred" category.
